It doesn’t happen often that I have A/N to go with a chapter, but since I’ve been asked so many times about the situation, I wanted to address it here because I know (and apologize for the fact that) I haven’t been able to reply to all of them.
I was asked,
“okay i can’t hold it in any longer, what is up with the farie thing!?!?!?! we know Gran slept with Fintan in the actual books but we knew that Gran knew about it, why has she not told anyone!?!?!?! sorry but i am seriously pulling out my hair in clumps i feel like im on the edge of a cliff trying to figure out when the big reveal is going to happen.”
The way CH wrote the nature of Faeries, knowing that Fintan disguised himself as Mitchell, that Preston disguised himself as a Were, and Niall can disguise his essence…
Since I don’t subscribe to anything that happened in books 10 or 11, I’m simply contending that Adele wasn’t allowed to remember meeting Fintan and truly believes Mitchell is the father of her children.
Honestly, it makes more sense to me…
- As morally upright as Adele Stackhouse was, I would think that she would have let guilt eat her alive.
- I don’t think she would have let Sookie go on with an active ability without giving her an explanation. There are several years within the scope of the story when she could have confided in Sookie without risking the feelings of her children.
- I don’t think if she knew about Faeries she would have been so keen to let Sookie be involved with Bill. If nothing else, I would think Adele would have mentioned she should stay away from Vampires when they came out of the coffin.
